Our outdoor practice space.

The retreat will be held at Concordia Eco-Resort on the island of Saint John in the US Virgin Islands.  I visited Saint John for the first time last year and it’s great. Consistent 80 degree weather, amazing snorkeling, hiking trails, beautiful beaches. And, because it’s a US territory you can use US dollars and you don’t even need a passport to go there. It’s a great spot.

The retreat center is located on the side of a hill and has breathtaking views of the ocean from each individual room. The yoga practice will take place in a Pavillion looking over the ocean. There is also the opportunity to take a walk to the beach and practice there as well.

Here’s some of the activities that are available:
